- Astigmatism causes blurred vision at all distances.
- This is caused when the corneal surface is not perfectly rounded but more elongated like a rugby ball.
- Light from objects can’t be focused into one sharp point but is spread out causing blurred vision.
Treatment for Astigmatism
Astigmatism is most often corrected with glasses or contact lenses, but laser refractive surgery provides you with an alternative. The two most common laser treatments for astigmatism we offer at Hunter Laser Vision are LASIK and Trans PRK. Both procedures are safe and highly effective. You will need a consultation to determine whether these procedures are right for you. This will depend on a number of factors including your prescription, eye health, age, and lifestyle.
